Might as well be China, there are so many hoops to jump through:

massachusetts-flagOh man that’s bad.  Lucky no one has been murdered with a flintlock recently, or they would be looking to ban those as low capacity assault rifles.

If the cartoon lawyer had a bit less hair and a bow tie he could be Alan Gottlieb.

Thoughts?  Any current Massholes or former ones read this blog?

    It’s amazing but true: we can prevent terror suspects from boarding an airplane, but the FBI doesn’t have the power to block them from buying dynamite or an AK-47.

    Full Story – HERE

    Not true Mayor Bloomberg… you actually can’t prevent terror suspects from boarding airplanes, and that is evident by the fact that recent Times Square bomb plot suspect Faisal Shahzad was able to board a Dubai-bound flight at JFK airport in your own city (Source).

    I’m all for “closing the terror gap” when taken at face value… but in reality rather than buying new guns and risk being caught, terrorists will just start purchasing guns used (stolen or otherwise) or obtaining them through a legal 3rd party (also known as a straw purchase).  Just like other criminals, terrorists obviously do not care about the law, so circumventing it to get what they want is not going to faze them.

    I can’t help but be suspicious that closing the terror gap will also mean more restrictions put on the rest of us.

    Another problem is that currently the terror watch list is a huge joke. There are thousands of people on the list that shouldn’t be on there.  Should they be denied the right to purchase a gun?  Remember 8 year old Mikey Hicks?
